EVENT: Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta Book Club – April Meeting

Heads up guys, it’s time for our monthly book club meeting! If you’re interested in German literature and want to get into a great discussion about it too then this is definitely for you!

Book Club

Our book club meets once a month and discusses selected German-language books, many of which have an English translation. The discussions are held in both English and German, depending on the text in question and always prove to be lively, engaging and exciting!

To celebrate our 40th anniversary, our book club meetings in 2016 will see the group discussing authors who have been our guests here at the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta, and literature centered around Goethe and his contemporary’s.

During this meeting, the group will be discussing “Der Tag, am dem unser Vater erzählte, dass er ein DDR-Spion sei” by Thomas Raufeisen which is only available German. The discussion will be in German. Thomas Raufeisen visited the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta in November 2014 and, as well as visiting schools in the area, spoke to a full house in our auditorium about his book including how he found out his father was a spy and the time he spent in prison.
